All new for 2003, the Isuzu Ascender rolls into showrooms as a replacement to the ever-popular Isuzu Trooper. The Ascender offers plenty of buyer benefits, including a roomy cabin, plenty of power under the hood, an affordable price tag and a comprehensive warranty. It’s powered by a 4.2-liter inline 6-cylinder that generates 275 horses and 275 lbs-ft of torque. Buyers have the choice between the standard S model and the S equipped with 4WD. The Ascender seats up to seven people and comes equipped with auto climate control, heated seats, a trip computer and ABS.
